Substitutions made it Amazing! I substituted 1/2 pound of Italian hot sausage for the chorizo. My daughter doesn't like tomato pieces, so I used crushed tomatoes instead. Browning the spaghetti was weird and pieces kept popping out of the pot when I tried to stir it. When this was cooking my daughter said, It smells like a fancy restaurant in here! This was good a good sign, as she is a picky eater. I added no additional salt or pepper and for the first time ever, no one else did after they were served! Everyone raved about this dish and asked how soon would I make it again. Next time I will try hot Italian turkey sausage to make this a little healthier. Pros: Quick, Easy
Bland This was an easy recipe, but left me very disappointed when it came to flavor. Maybe I bought the wrong Chorizo, but there was no kick. I added red pepper flakes to turn up the heat, I may try a different chorizo or add a larger amount next time. Pros: Quick, Simple Cons: Bland

good, but added flavor Once the dish was done and I tasted it, I decided it needed a bit more flavor, as some of the other reviewers have said. I added some basil, pesto, and pesto rosso. This did the trick! Pretty good... this will stay in my recipe box! Pros: fairly quick Cons: needed more flavor
Great quick meal My husband loved this recipe. I thought it was satisfying although something was missing , maybe it could use a little more spice. It was very fast and easy though! Pros: super fast and easy to cook Cons: lacking a little in flavor
Loved it! I made this recipe as is and I loved it!! The Chorizo added just the right amount of heat. I didn't even have to add salt. This will be a favorite. Pros: Easy and fun to make, I never toasted pasta before. Cons: Nothing.
So easy to make and so delicious.I have been looking for a recipe so close to this one. I love the toasted pasta, my mother use to make this dish when i was a child,with toasted fideos, ground beef, fresh ground pepper,garlic and cumin.This dish is so healthy too. I will make this dish over and over again. Thank you eatingwell .
Was good.. with some help I've never made fideos, but the picture made it look pretty yummy, so i had to give it a try. I think the recipe has good potential, but the results were bland. I even used a good quality chicken broth instead of water and still found that it needed more seasoning. If you don't want to up your sodium intake by adding salt, then maybe some red pepper flakes would be good if added while sauteing the garlic and chorizo. I will try that next time as well as doubling the green onions. Pros: Easy, fast, vegetarian Cons: bland
